30 Days of Gratitude: Day 8

Well, here we are, already at Tuesday! I guess I enjoyed the weekend so much I kept rolling with it until today…

Today I am grateful for:

  • Giving myself a break. I find that so often I am my own worst enemy. It’s okay to let yourself go every once and a while and just enjoy things. As you can see, I’ve taken a few days off in my own journal. But that’s okay. I had a wonderful weekend. A really wonderful weekend, and the time away from my phone and computer was time well spent.
  • My patio. It’s basically our second living room. It’s quite large, tiled, fenced in and beautiful. I love the herbs and flowers that are growing back there, the full-size dining table (which accommodates ladies night perfectly), and the twinkle lights hanging above and directly on the fence. It’s such a peaceful, happy space.

  • Sunday Fundays! My Sunday was spent with my boyfriend, his brother and a handful of his friends on a yacht. I don’t think I need to elaborate, but I will. The boys loaded up their surfboards and we made our way out into the open seas, and then back around to Point Loma behind the break so the boys could jump right in and catch some waves. It was AMAZING. Again, I am SO SO appreciative of the proximity of the ocean to my everyday activities.

Namaste!

Champagne Makes Everything Better

This past weekend was one I really, really wished wouldn’t have ended. It wasn’t anything extraordinary, per se. Just a few small moments, one after the other, that when combined added up to a lovely weekend. (We’re talking sushi, discovering a new dive bar, bbq, bonfire…you know, the uge)

Sunday in particular was quite nice.

Any morning that begins with pastries and champagne is alright by me.

Calamari and oysters ain’t half bad either. (Confession: did not partake in the oysters…)

But the Pièce de résistance?

Crabcake eggs benedict.

Delightful.

Oh wait! I forgot to mention. This was our view:

Cardiff by the Sea

Followed by some quality time at the beach and I don’t see how my Sunday could have been better.

I guess I could stop making stupid faces.

(But that’s not going to happen anytime soon.)

A quick shout out to my two hot dates for the day:

How was your weekend?
